Triumphant Eagles fans leave destruction in their wake

PHILADELPHIA (KYW/CNN) – Authorities greased poles in Philadelphia to keep people from climbing them after Sunday’s Super Bowl, and it worked, sort of.

After the Eagles shocked the Patriots for their first Super Bowl championship, Philly fans weren’t climbing poles – they were tearing them out of the ground.

Shortly after the final whistle, exultant fans took to the streets to celebrate, resulting in a number of isolated acts of vandalism overnight. Fans took down several light poles around the city, injuring a few people, according to the mayor’s office.

The windows were also smashed out of some buildings, with at least one report of looting at a gas station.

Some fans even flipped over a car.

The mayor's office said Philadelphia police arrested at least three people early Monday in connection with the disturbances.
